CORONA VIRUS UPDATE: BACK TO THE GYM; TIER 1 IN EFFECT

USA Boxing is working with Connecticut LBC leadership to begin to slowly roll out boxing in your LBC. We are utilizing these three principles when making all decisions concerning return to boxing training/competition and ask that you do the same.
1. Health & Safety of USA Boxing boxers, coaches, officials and physicians
2. Health & Safety of USA Boxing administration and staff
3. Practice good citizenship by doing our part to decrease the spread of COVID-19
The State of Connecticut has announced it is beginning to re-open activity Wednesday, June 17th, 2020. Please understand Connecticut may continue to experience restrictions regionally based upon county and local regulations. It is critical that you continue to adhere to state and local guidance when determining what activity or crowd size is allowed within your vicinity. For more information on local guidelines please visit the National Association of Counties.
Please access the USA Boxing Tier 1 - Return to Gym - Preparation and Phase 1 Guide available on the website (www.usaboxing.org) under the BACK TO BOXING tab. These protocols call for specific safety measures to ensure safe re-entry into activity.
We thank all of you, as members, for adhering to these guidelines so we may again participate in the sport we all love. It is up to each one of us to take the necessary precautions to ensure a gradual and safe return to boxing activity.

Tier 1: Return to the Gym

Preparation: Preparing your gym and coaching staff
•Each staff member should wear a face mask while inside the gym
•Maintain social distancing
•Review this “Wash your hands!” video
•Wash all surfaces of gym with a bleach solution of 4 teaspoons bleach to quart of water
•Remove all common gym equipment (gloves, headgear, cups, etc.)
•Wash all remaining equipment with bleach solution (ex. boxing bags, jump ropes, etc.)
•Hang gym guidelines posters on at least one wall in each room and near each station
•Have equipment/bags/stations at least 10 ft apart
•Identify hazards and risk “hot spots” as Low, Medium and High to mitigate those risks
•Place hand sanitizer and (bleach) wipes near common stations (ex. boxing bags, jump ropes, etc.)
•After the gym opens for members, routinely wash equipment (ex. boxing bags, ropes, etc.) and common contact points (ex. doorknobs, sink taps, etc.) after every session
•When Preparation is complete, progress to Phase 1

Phase 1: Limited Participation
•Please adhere to your state and local government most up-to-date guidelines
•Inform members of new policies (ex. reservations; sign-in sheets; use personal equipment; etc.)
•Stay home if you show symptoms or may be in a high risk population
•If possible, take each members temperature before entering gym
•All members should follow all hygiene precautions (ex. face covering, wash hands, use hand sanitizer, etc.) Homemade masks are acceptable
•If possible, BYOE! Bring your own equipment (gloves, headgear, cups, etc.). Do not share! If must share, strongly suggest sanitizing shared equipment between each person's use
•Maintain social distancing (ex. no sparring, no focus mitts, etc.)
•Maximum of one (1) member in gym per 225 sq. ft (15ft x 15ft) area (10 people max. including coaches and parents)
